The flat has been my home for 20 years. I love the tenement style: big rooms, high ceilings and large windows. Everything is built for comfort: big sofas; large, nicely decorated rooms with high ceilings; and spacious, with no clutter. Wi-Fi is included for your use as well.
The neighbourhood is perfectly located. Kelvingrove Park, Botanic Gardens, Kelvingrove Museum, excellent local bars and restaurants are all a short walk away.
The living room has comfortable sofas to relax on, Sky TV, Apple TV, Netflix, DVD player, hi-fi with iPod doc, turntable, CDs and LPs, board games and books for your use.
The fully equipped kitchen has an electric cooker, large fridge freezer, combi-microwave oven, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, Dualit toaster, and Panini press. Pots and pans are mainly Le Creuset. There is also a Bose iPod doc for your use. The kitchen table seats up to six people. Gas central heating provides instant hot water.
If you don't want to spend your time away cooking, then one of the best curries in Glasgow can be found at the Shish Mahal, two minutes walk from the flat.
Both bedrooms contain comfortable double beds and ample storage space for your clothes. A further single blowup mattress is also available if required.
The bathroom contains a large double sized shower with electric shower. Shampoo, shower gel, and toothpaste are provided, along with plenty of towels.
Guests will have access to the entire flat that is situated on the second floor of a tenement block. Our personal belongings are stored away in the hall cupboard for the duration of your stay.
Interaction with Guests
We're delighted to offer advice on where to go in Glasgow both prior to and during your stay. We will check you in on arrival and show you round the flat (if we are away, a friend will do this). We are also contactable during your stay.
We, like you, have used AirBNB as guests, so want to ensure you have an excellent time during your stay in our home, therefore if there's anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, please let us know and we will try our best to accommodate you.
The neighbourhood is perfectly located. Kelvingrove Park, Botanic Gardens, Kelvingrove Museum, excellent local cafes, bars and restaurants are all a short walk away. We tend to eat and drink locally, rather than go in to the city centre.
Check out my Guidebook for some suggestions.
Glasgow is a very walkable city; the flat is well placed to do that as it's within walking distance of the city centre and West End attractions. One of our favourite walks is along the River Kelvin, which can be found 5 minutes from the flat.
If you don't like the idea of walking into the City Centre, then Kelvinbridge Subway is a 5 minute walk away. Journey time into the city is approximately 7 minutes. £1.60 single/£3.00 return/£4.00 day ticket.
The flat is a couple of minutes walk to bus stops on both Woodlands Road and Great Western Road. Cost of a single ticket into the city is £1.90. Return and day tickets are also available; prices depend on which areas you will be travelling to.
The flat is easy to find from the M8 motorway and is approximately 20 minutes drive from the airport, dependent on the traffic. There is on street parking available, which is subject to metered parking from 8am to 10pm. We can provide you with parking vouchers that cost £2 per 6-hour window (£6/day) to save hassle/money. Just let us know if you require these vouchers prior to your visit and we can leave them for you.
If you're keen to hire a car, we tend to use Enterprise or Hertz, best to book online in advance.
Glasgow now has bikes for rent dotted all around the city. The nearest rank to the flat is less than 10 minutes walk.
Other Things to Note
We try to be as flexible as possible regarding check-in, so please let us know as soon as you can when you expect to arrive; we will normally be able to accommodate your request. Check out on the day of departure is usually 12 noon, but if we do not have guests arriving that day, this can be flexible as well. Again just let us know and we will do our best to help.
Feel free to use all the apartment appliances; manuals have been left for most of them, but we are contactable during your stay if you need help/advice.
We are very laid back, and insist you put your feet up on the couches or living room table when watching TV with a glass of wine.
Our neighbours are quiet; therefore the flat isn't suitable for late night parties!
Finally: have a wonderful time in your home away from home.
